Okonjo-Iweala, who is the Director General of the World Trade Organisation, WTO, has faced rebuke over a photograph she posted from a leadership summit in Paris, France, where President Bola Tinubu was alleged to have been cropped out.
The All Progressives Congress, APC chieftain, Adamu Garba, criticized Okonjo-Iweala for posting the photograph.
Garba said the former Nigerian Minister of Finance can’t spite at Tinubu with such a photograph.
Taking to their Twitter handles, some Nigerians wrote: Doing so is to spite Tinubu as a person; she should know that Tinubu is the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Whoever spites at him has done so against the government and the people of Nigeria. And we noted that. Indeed, rebellion is the greatest of all sins.”
@LydiaTeeanaJaja: “Wow, so she literally cropped out the part President Tinubu was showing.
“God cannot be mocked and that’s why Peter Obi can never be President of Nigeria. The Igbos will learn the hard way.”
“Iya agbaya like you, the hatred all of you have for south west will end up consuming you, whether you like it or not Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is your president for the next 8 years, and as far as Nigeria is concerned, no Igbo man will ever become the president of this great Nation.”
Garba: “If she like, let her not acknowledge or recognize the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The same Nigeria that did everything for her to become who she is today, the leader of same party, APC, which gave her the wherewithal to get her current office as DG of WTO.
